“Its a Marshmallow World Out There…”

large (27)

That’s the song that I can hear playing off the Pandora station downstairs. Such a pretty song! ^_^ Of course there is no snow in the middle of Phoenix, but I dream.

Earlier today:

I’m multitasking at this moment! I just submitted my final paper as a creative piece on Booktrack to my teacher while I get ready to attend class; I’m copy and pasting scripture verses about strength into a letter for my sister, who’s still at Basic Training; and I’m mentally preparing to take my final two college assessment tests later today (for reading and writing an essay, both of which are two things I’m actually comfortable with, so I’m not that stressed.) It’s kinda fun to multitask!

It’s been awhile since I’ve blogged; I’ve been happy being alone in my head lately, working out personal feelings and making big decisions that I was afraid of making a few months ago. The last four weeks has been especially interesting, a brand new challenge or revelation cropping up almost every day. I feel like I’ve grown a lot and changed a lot on the inside and that feels really good, guys!

Oh, I know something I want to talk about!

Currently, my soul is completely obsessed with Pentatonix’s latest album. Its been a very long time since I connected so well to one group’s music; and I’m back in love with a Capella! “Water” tore me open and put me back together; I’ve been aggressively thumping to “Ref” and mouthing the words to all the people who’ve left me; “Na Na Na” is too much fun to walk the dogs too; “New Year’s Eve” makes me want to soar into the clouds; and “Sing”… I can belt out “Sing” and its like the best instant pick-me-up ever.

I’ve said for years that music is my soulmate, and I’m always reminded of how true that is for me whenever I find so many songs that just click. “Rose Gold” “Cracked” “Take Me Home” “First Things First” and “Can’t Sleep Love” are also incredible….so just listen to the whole album, guys. It’s what the inside of my head sounds like right now and it’s loud enough to make me write two paragraphs about it. XD

This evening:

Talk about multi-tasking; I wrote all that this morning before I left for school. Now it’s the evening and I’m about to do my laundry before watching all the weekend’s anime episodes.

Oh; I got good scores on my two assessment tests! And I got present Booktrack to my entire class and everyone seemed to really enjoy it. It was kinda fun presenting something off the cuff, too. I’ve found this semester, for not having much practice, I’m not bad at all with public speaking! Especially if it’s about something I love. 😀

I could keep rambling but I’m going to go watch anime before it gets any later. I hope you all are having a nice holiday season? What have you been doing? Anyone survive finals in one piece? Anyone over-playing any specific pieces of music? Please share; gimme gimme gimme. I might love it too! ❤

  1. Music-wise I’ve been stuck on “Hello” by Adele and “Which Witch” by Florence and the Machine, both are powerful and fun to sing aloud! And as for Pentatonix, I loved when they collaborated with Todrick Hall in his Wizard of Oz (or Wizard of Ahhs, as he called it) video, the music and costumes were brilliant and it made me a little teary actually. 😀

    1. I heard Hello a few times, it’s very gorgeous!!! Adele has the prettiest singing voice!! I’ll definitely need to check out “Which Witch” though! Thank you!!! 😀

  2. “Music is my soulmate.” same.

    I only have to take one final, praise the Lord, and its tomorrow. Im sorta nervous, sorta not. because if I dont do well enough I could fail the class. so no pressure.

    but yay on good test scores and anime and a Capella!

    Merry Christmas 🙂

    1. I hope you’re final went well, I was praying for you the next day even though I wasn’t able to respond back to you immediately. I hope you’re enjoying no more school now! Merry Christmas, Faith! ❤

  3. Good to hear from you again. ^ ^ I’m glad life is treating you well. ^ ^ I’m currently obsessing over “Deep in the Meadow” from the Mockingjay Part 2 soundtrack.

    1. Thank you, I know, I just kinda dropped off the social media world recently. XD I hope to come back home soon! ❤

      OMG I hadn't even thought of checking out the Mockingjay Part2 soundtrack yet! Must do so now! ❤

  4. I’ve got “Hikari no Senritsu” and “Akame ga Kill’s” first Ed stuck in my head. Such utterly gorgeous songs, wah!
    I’m happy to be reading from you again! Hope you are well.

    1. Gotta listen to those!!! Thank you!!

      I know, I dropped off earth there for awhile. XD Semester finals and sorting of personal issues lol. I hope to be back to blogging soon! ❤

  5. Oh Pentatonix’s ‘Sing’! That is such an amazing song. I haven’t heard the rest of the album yet, but I’m hoping to get it very soon, maybe even for Christmas! I’ve been listening to Christmas music mostly lately. Peter Hollen’s version of ‘Mary Did You Know?’ is amazing! As is Pentatonix’s ‘The First Noel’.

It always makes my day to see your messages! Don't forget to check back, I try to write back to you too! <3
